The evidence of this is found not just by listening to songs like the letting-go-of-love track “Salvation” or the learning-to-be-still track “Wild Soul,” but is also found by listening to the emotion in Slim’s voice as he recounts those events from a first-person perspective.
The blend of Americana, bluegrass and folk music often relies on whimsical banjo playing and fanciful piano to beckon the listener to come sit a spell. It’s a formula Slim hasn’t really deviated from since he started releasing albums in 1999 and one that has garnered him recognition at music festivals across the country.
The Way We Move is a beautiful illustration of how people choose to navigate life and play the hand they are dealt. The album preaches that while the past doesn’t have to dictate the future, you can’t forge a new existence if you forget the lessons you’ve learned.
